With all the thousands of engineers at google, you’d think someone speaks binary. But perhaps not. Attendees of the Google I/O conference today were given t-shirts that, presumably, were supposed to spell GOOGLEIO on the front in binary. Just one problem, the actual message printed spells GOOGLEKO:
The “I” that should’ve been in place of the “K” would’ve been 01001001.
If you got one of these, save it. It’s definitely a collector’s item now. I’ll pay $50 for an XL, if anyone’s selling.
Check for yourself here – and remember that upper and lower case letters have different binary spellings. Thanks for the tip Randy.
